An article about Kashmiri Maqbool Bhat who we should know as well as we do Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Che Guevara, Bobby Sands, Berta Cáceres, & other giant figures of the struggle for human freedom. He was executed in a New Delhi jail in 1984 at the age of 46. Indian authorities continue to refuse to return his body to Kashmir for respectful & honored burial. He is not just a leader of Kashmiri freedom but an inspiration & a giant to all of suffering humanity.
He said: “For us, azadi means not just getting rid of foreign occupation of our beloved motherland but also to remove hunger, poverty, ignorance & disease & to overcome economic & social devastation. One day we will achieve that. Azadi.”
